I was in a CC recently with the samsung, sony, and sharp side-by-side. Just on colors,
the Samsung would be my choice. My point is, what looks best to you? I'd suggest
comparing features, remote controls, cabinet, warranty, and what you plan to watch
on the TV. There are reports of "banding" on some sharp LCDs, and cloudiness or "mura"
on samsung and sony's. There are a lost of threads on those issues. For me, I'd like some
time between people reporting quality issues and throwing some serious cash on
a specific large LCD TV. There are some people in serious turmoil with sets they are not happy
with. Others swear by their sharp, samsung, or sony.
How convenient would it be to have to pull the curtains closed to watch tv? I guess
it depends when you watch most and what you watch. I have an LCD in an extremely
bright room with white walls and it's great. If movies at night are your main deal, then
perhaps plasma's your best bet.
